ANC places Supra Mahumapelo on precautionary leave

The confusion surrounding embattled North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo's resignation will be cleared up by tomorrow.

Residents had protested violently against Mahumapelo's controversial administration‚ bringing parts of the city to a standstill.

"The FF+ welcomes the resignation of Mahumapelo but will not allow the allegations implicating him in extensive fraud and corruption to come to nothing".

As he delivered his budget speech on Tuesday morning, Mahumapelo had told the provincial legislature he would be handing over a letter to the Speaker by Friday.

The vehicle can break down and the driver not be able to use lights or hazard flashers to warn other motorists of their issue. Put simply, it means a vehicle's battery could lose connection to the fuse box, rendering the auto completely powerless.

Acting North West provincial secretary Susan Dantjie told journalists after a PEC meeting that Mahumapelo has been instructed to go on leave pending an investigation into governance issues in the province. "It is individuals that are in the ANC", said Mahumapelo to loud cheers.

"New developments" have led to the "indefinite" postponement of a press conference, scheduled for Wednesday morning, when North West premier Supra Mahumapelo was supposed to announce his resignation, IOL reported. Specialised policing unit the Hawks raided the premier's his office and the province's health system reached a complete breakdown as members of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) embarked on a strike more than two months ago.

Venter believes the ANC "will definitely act against the leadership of Mahumapelo".

Dantjie has also denied that Mahumapelo was forced to resign by President Cyril Ramaphosa. "Just that we want stability", Mahumapelo told supporters. "I think they are also very much involved at Provincial Treasury and a few other places to see if they can get service delivery going again", says Venter.
